Common Tit Butterfly

Nikon D300, SB800, Tamron 180mm, 1/200s, f9, iso640

Common Tit belong to Lycaeninae family which has tail at the end of their vein. That makes this butterfly family looks elegant. Common Tit can be found at urban park or nature reserves in most part of South East Asia.

During the sunny day, common tit will open its wings and sunbathing under the sun. That makes it easier for me to approach them without disturbing them. It is very tricky to photograph them under sunny day. Under sunny day, it will cast a harsh shadow and it will also lit up unwanted background. Normally I will use fill flash to counter the problems but it won’t help for many situation. Following the butterfly from place to place for better shooting situation or have a partner to hold an umbrella to shade off the harsh sun light will definitely help.

Most important is to have patient to wait and follow them for a good butterfly photo.
